Blue Mountain Chorus of Sweet Adelines will host Paula Davis, the new president of Sweet Adelines International.  

She’s expected to coach the chorus at 6:30 p.m. Nov. 14 during rehearsal on stage in the Walla Walla Community College Performing Arts Center.

Interested singers may come and observe, said chorus director Darlene Filla in a release.

The local chorus is also making plans for the annual world wide open house in January.  Sweet Adelines around the globe open their doors to women of all ages, including those 25 years old and younger who may join for half the membership dues, Darlene said.

“They have the opportunity to learn more about the organization while learning more about their own voices,” she said.

And Paula will return for a weekend coaching session as the chorus prepares for the 2017 regional chorus convention and competition in April.

The chorus will host its annual concert at 7:30 p.m. Nov. 5 in Cordiner Hall on the Whitman College campus. See or call 520-0675 for details on tickets and other information.
